InPark applauds Disneyland for supporting the community and helping to increase the pace of COVID-19 vaccinations in California to help contain the spread of the virus. We are pleased to share this news from the County of Orange, which reported on Jan 11, 2021 that the site would be operational “later this week,” using an appointment system.
The vaccination site is being set up in the Toy Story lot, an auxiliary parking lot physically separate from the rest of the resort. Disney parks around the globe have been known to provide such support in past instances such as providing emergency shelter to tourists stranded by the Japan earthquake of 2011.
The County of Orange acting Chairman Andrew Do, First District, said, “The Disneyland Resort, the largest employer in the heart of Orange County, has stepped up to host the county’s first Super POD [Point-of-Dispensing] site – undertaking a monumental task in our vaccination distribution process. We truly appreciate the support of the Orange County Fire Authority, our cities, and our residents as we continue to roll out COVID-19 vaccinations throughout the county.”
Supervisor Doug Chaffee said, “I’m proud to have Disneyland Resorts and the City of Anaheim, both in my Fourth District, be the first of the Super POD sites in Orange County. Residents in my district have been highly impacted by COVID-19. These Super PODs are absolutely critical in stopping this deadly virus.”
Supervisor Donald P. Wagner, Third District, said, “It’s important to vaccinate as many willing people as possible for COVID-19, and we need the space to do it.”
Five regional Super PODs are being set up to provide capacity to vaccinate thousands of residents each day throughout Orange County. The County will announce additional Super POD sites as agreements are finalized.
Vaccine distribution is managed through a phased, tiered approach established by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). Currently, vaccinations are available to Orange County residents and those who work in Orange County who meet the criteria for what is referred to as “Phase 1a, all tiers.” This group includes law enforcement first responders in high-risk communities and was recently expanded to include those age 75 and older. According to the County report, most of those eligible to be vaccinated in Phase 1a will be contacted through their employer to schedule an appointment via a third-party app developed in cooperation with the County of Orange.
